UPDATE!

Pasaquan will not re-open in the Spring as it has for the past several years. It is entering a transitional period during which it will likely undergo a lengthy and long hoped-for restoration process. Additional news is pending. Please stay tuned.

THANKS!

Many thanks to every single musician, artist, poet, volunteer, and visitor who helped celebrate Pasaquan on Artists for Pasaquan weekend.  Check out Friends of St. EOM's Pasaquan Facebook page for some great photos of the event.

Except for private tours, Pasaquan is closed for the winter season.  To arrange a private tour, e-mail us at landofpasaquan@gmail.com. The more notice you can give us, the better. Cost of a private tour is $100 for 1-20 people.

Even though Pasaquan is closed for tours, work is continuing behind the scenes.  Stay tuned here for exciting updates regarding the restoration effort.  Keep your hair combed upward, your power suits zipped, and send good vibrations our way!

ARTISTS FOR PASAQUAN WEEKEND!


The Pasaquan Preservation Society is proud to announce Artists for Pasaquan Weekend, Nov. 2-3, 2013. This event will include site tours, musical performances, food vendors, and an art show and sale featuring the works of many regional artists.
  
A new feature of Artists for Pasaquan Weekend this year will be "Visions of Pasaquan — Poetry Readings in the Spirit of St. EOM" by Atlanta Queer Lit Festival. The readings are scheduled for 2 and 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Pasaquan.
  
Artists for Pasaquan allows artists and musicians to demonstrate their belief in the importance of preserving Pasaquan while offering visitors one last chance to see this world-renowned art site before it closes for the winter. Pasaquan and its eccentric creator, Eddie Owens Martin, a.k.a. St. EOM, have been featured in dozens of local, regional, and national publications and television shows, including the New York Times, NPR, Smithsonian Magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle. 
   
The complex consists of six unique buildings, all interconnected by a series of painted masonry walls, colorful concrete sculptures and an assortment of interesting landscape elements and plantings. Pasaquan is an amazing example of individual creativity and a personal vision that is virtually unmatched in its scope and concept anywhere else in the world.
   
Cameras and picnic baskets are welcome. Food will also be available for purchase.
   
The site is located near Buena Vista, Ga., an easy drive from Atlanta, Columbus, Macon and Albany. For directions and further information, visit www.pasaquan.com.
    
Admission to Artists for Pasaquan is $5 per person, free for kids 6 and under. Cash only, please. All proceeds go to the preservation of Pasaquan.
